All of the available Fiji volunteer projects begin with an introductory week that includes exciting adventures, cultural excursions and the opportunity for travellers to immerse themselves in the local culture.
Mix island-hopping pleasure with making a difference in the Island volunteer program. On this trip you’ll have the chance to work your way around different island communities on the gorgeous tropical islands of Fiji.
On this project you’ll be working with the local villages in the field of community development and education, where projects will include the development, renovation and beautification of schools, kindergartens and community halls.
The projects are based on the breathtaking volcanic islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, where you will arrive via ferry to be greeted by the head of the village in a traditional Kava ceremony. During your project days in Levuka, you will be hosted by local families and get to experience traditional island life and be treated to some iconic Fijian hospitality.
The islands of Fiji are surrounded by soft, sandy beaches and swaying coconut palms. In your free time you will be able to explore this magnificent country through it’s vibrant markets, exceptional clear waters and postcard-worthy beaches.
No two days on this project will be the same, and your exact itinerary will be dependant on the island and/or project you are working on. Each day’s schedule will fit into the following outline, but may be adjusted to meet the specific needs of each individual project.
09.00-12.00: Renovation work of a kindergarten, Primary school or a community hall will be undertaken.
12.00-13.00: Lunch and rest

17.00-18.00: Play a game like rugby or volley ball with the local youth and children of the community
18.00-19.00: Dinner time!
During the weekends, you can explore the many beautiful sites of the island around you, enjoy relaxation on the beach or immerse yourself in the culture of local community life!
